Cinema poet Pasolini directs opera diva Callas in this straightforward adaptation of Euripides's classic about a sorceress whose escapades range from assisting in the theft of the Golden Fleece to murdering her own children. Not Pasolini at his best, but still better than most if what you're looking for is something arty. In Italian with English subtitles. 118m/C VHS, DVD . IT Maria Callas, Guiseppi Gentile, Laurent Terzieff; D: Pier Paolo Pasolini.
